Did you know that the “Picasso of China” lived in California in the late 1960s and early 70s? And did you know he once pranked a French museum with his “copies” of ancient Chinese art. This one hour lecture will open up the fascinating and paradoxical career of a traditionalist who became a modernist.

This talk is part of our And Now for Something Different talk series with John Seed

Art historian John Seed presents a series of lectures on art and artists that you may not have heard of. Each one hour presentation will be followed by a short Q and A session.

John Seed is a Professor Emeritus of Art and Art History at Mt. San Jacinto College. After earning degrees in Art and Stanford and UC Berkeley—where he became familiar with Bay Area Art—Seed has spent over 25 years working as a researcher for a private dealer in Hawaiian and Southeast Asian art. Seed has recently written feature articles for Arts of Asia Magazine and Sotheby’s Asia.
